Kiesel Guitars Introduces Aries Bass Series

Kiesel Guitars has expanded their bass lineup with the Aries series, which comes in four-, five-, and six-string versions. The made-in-the-USA model is based on their Aries guitar and carries similar aesthetics in a bigger package.

Kiesel Aries AB5 Bass

As with the rest of Kiesel’s custom shop instruments, the Aries bass is available with a wide range of woods for the body, neck, top, and fingerboard. The body itself can be ordered with a beveled body or non-beveled body for a more traditional style. A standard feature will be the company’s Radium humbuckers with options for active or passive electronics.

The Kiesel Guitars Aries Series Basses are available for order now with prices starting at $1,049.
